The Op was warning, and I agree.

Am sure most have seen the Bluebird debit card currently being promoted by Walmart, and American Express.

https://bluebird.com/

On my first once-over, it looked pretty good to me. Does anyone see a downside to this? The sub-account thingy sounds good, for sharing... kids, parents, etc.

Not sure what this means...

Bluebird members never pay surcharge fees at MoneyPass ATMs, including Money Center Express machines at Walmart (but a $2 Amex network fee will apply unless you have Employer Direct Deposit)
?

Unless there's something I'm missing, it looks like a good back up for the few cards I'm using now... especially the ease of adding $$$ to the balance.

What think?

Utter rip-off.

No annual fee is reasonable; not $48.

I think Bluebird is used by some travel hackers, but I've never done it. A couple of my cards have annual fees, but only SW has them the first year so I will probably not keep the others when they come due.

Been using Bluebird for about a week. Yep, it's an easy way to convert credit card spending back into cash, so I made nearly $1k in the past week or so, and BB definitely helped. You could easily do the same thing with airline miles. Just keep in mind that Bluebird is not a bank, not FDIC insured, and reports are that the customer service is poor, although i haven't had to call them up for anything yet. So far so good.
